OntarioGenWeb Updates

OntarioGenWeb's Census Project
23 new census transcripts have been added

Durham County
Still receiving queries for the old county, and still filling requests for look-ups, maps, etc.
I have recently started a new website for the Bible Christian Project - an ongoing project to collect as much information as possible about the Bible Christians in North America. There will be a link on the main page of The Bible Christians had a presence in 17 of Ontario's counties, in all three of PEI's counties, in southern Manitoba, and in three US states (Ohio, Upper Michigan and Wisconsin) These were all under the umbrella of the Canadian Conference. Old Durham County was a "hotbed" of Bible Christian movement as was Huron County in the west.

Glengarry County
  • I have updated the local groups and book page and will continue to do so.
  • Schedule of lots of Lunenburgh and Charlottenburgh 1789, including Lancaster Parts 1 & 2 pdfs original manuscripts: plus a list of lots taken by settlers from Ship Macdonald 1786 (compiled from George Sandfield Macdonald Scribble book 1889) have been uploaded.
